Focus Physio & Pilates provides progressive and comprehensive physiotherapy services. If you are seeking a Physiotherapist in Charlestown who will take the time to ensure an accurate diagnosis and provide a thorough treatment plan then Focus Physio & Pilates is right for you. We hold higher qualifications that enable us to restore functional movement so you can get back to what you enjoy most in life.
Our Physiotherapists have dual qualifications in Physiotherapy and Exercise & Sport Science. They also hold certifications in the with Functional Movement Systems, Advanced Dry Needling, Headache assessment & treatment, Running Biomechanics, Pilates and Kettlebell training.
Our passion lies in our mission to enable to people to move well and move often. We treat pain as all other therapists do. The difference is that we have the knowledge and tools to restore the body’s’ innate resilience and robustness too. This can only be achieved with the appropriate and accurate progression of corrective exercise.
We apply this knowledge of corrective exercise to traditional Pilates whether it is during mat, reformer or studio sessions to deliver a unique experience that is designed to give you a solid workout whilst restoring movement quality.
We also run Physiotherapist classes Charlestown. These sessions are highly individualized and are held in our functional training room. These sessions are designed to rectify your weakest links and load your neuromuscular system to improve efficiency, strength and robustness. We were designed to run, jump, swim, climb and lift heavy things. Too often, modern life gets in the way and general inactivity weakens our movement system. We become de-conditioned and lose our adaptability to our environment. You don’t have to be in pain to be losing movement quality, perhaps if we did then we would do something about it sooner
We utilise a variety of strategies for treatment which is always guided by diagnosis and assessment. That way the right tool is used for the right job every time. Treatment can include
- Joint Mobilisation/Manipulation
- Soft tissue massage
- Dry Needling
- Motor Control and Corrective Exercises
- Postural Correction
We DO NOT use
- Heat packs
as these strategies are for temporary symptomatic relief at best.
Once pain and dysfunction is eliminated we reload with strength to ensure that your recovery is durable.
Physiotherapy has come a long way since the days of ultrasound, heat packs, and isolating specific muscles in order to rehabilitate an injury. Although still effective at managing pain, dysfunctional movement often persists and re-injury occurs.
A paradigm shift has occurred from looking at muscles and joints in isolation to looking at whole body movement patterns and recognising that there is regional interdependence within the whole system.
